...Apology Socrates was one of the well-known philosophers that ever lived. He brought a lot of insight to people in society by focusing on various issues that people had initially avoided discussing. Going through some of the important issues that he discussed is imperative as it assists in understanding some of society’s problems. The fact that he discussed most of societal issues openly got him on the wrong especially with the authorities. There was one time that he was arrested for apparently derailing the youth. Socrates lived in an era where his community got into many conquests alongside the neighboring communities. He was a member of the Athenian army and given the...

...Apology Socrates was a Greek Athenian thinker, famous for his work on philosophy,including some plays and also as the tutor of pupils like Plato. The Apology is a document written by Plato in which he has noted down the apology Socrates made when he was put on trial due to certain accusations put against him. There is also another version written by Xenophon, but it is not considered as authentic since he was not present during the time of the trial even though Plato was. In fact, Plato himself was mentioned twice by Socrates in his apology. We cannot be sure of Xenophon’s text because it is all a result of word of mouth, but then he has added some more background information, too. Yet... ? Socrates’...

The “apology” is not an act of regret for one’s actions or being sorry for that matter since the Greek word “apologia” originally means “explanation.” In this case, Socrates was not sorry for what the people of Athens accused him but rather was a form of defense. Socrates defended himself in front of the jury by explaining what kind of life he had and who he was. The apology summarizes his defense in form of speech which he laid during his trial.

This prompted Socrates to find out what the oracle meant by it, because he did not consider himself exceptionally wise, which contradicts the oracle’s pronouncement which must always be considered true. 1.2.

It has not always been easy, however, to situate the apology firmly in any one linguistic theory and the literature of the last fifty years reflects this uncertainty.

On the contrary his opinion directly conflicts with the passage from “Crito” where Socrates chooses to obey the states laws and refuses to escape from an unjust conviction.

In fact, Socrates insists on the immense importance of definition in this work which has led to the charge of the Socratic fallacy in the world literature. In a reflective exploration of whether Socrates is correct, in the context of the Euthyphro and the Apology, to place such an emphasis on the definition of words, it is essential to maintain that Euthyphro admits, at the end of the dialogues, that his definitions have been failure.

One of the major statements made by Socrates in Apology is that a ‘good man is not harmed in life or death’ and he emphasizes the role of ‘divine sign’ which guides the good man away from wrong action. He also maintains that it is better to suffer injustice than to do it and the worst thing in the world is to do what is unjust.

Thus, I would like to argue that according to Socrates, a life that is worth living is a life that is being examined; and this examination involves both reflection and judgment. It is possible here to find that in normal sense, the word ‘examine’ stands for ‘to search’, or to ‘scrutinize’. In both the cases, it becomes easy to understand what Socrates meant by ‘an examined life’. If taken in a judicial context, the term ‘examination’ means getting...

As a gadfly, Socrates argues that he has the responsibility to arouse, persuade and reproach the state at all times in order to ensure the state is responsive. Without the gadfly, the state would sink into irresponsible slumber. The presence of the gadfly - albeit irritating - spurs the state to pursue productivity and virtuosity.
